Fortnite's Free PUBG-Like Battle Royale Mode

Epic Games developer of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode will become a free to play experience. The game will be a 100 player PVP mode setup just like Player Unknown's Battlegrounds with one map. And the last player standing wins. A big difference from Battlegrounds is that players are dropped into the world from a "battle bus" in the sky instead of an airplane as in Battlegrounds.

The Battle Royale mode will be free on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 starting on September 26. After launch, Epic will offer cosmetic items to buy with real money but the game will never sell items that impact gameplay or give some players a leg up on the competition.

In other Fortnite news, the game's PvE campaign, called "Save the World," is getting "lots of great updates" in the future, including a "Block Party" mode and Halloween-themed content in October. The Fortnite base game is still in paid Early Access, but it's going free-to-play next year.

Fortnite's standalone Battle Royale mode launched yesterday for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and despite objections from PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole, it's already off to an impressive start. Today, Epic revealed that more than one million players played the title on launch day.

Like PUBG, Battle Royale is a 100-player survival game set on a single map that closes in as the game progresses. Players are dropped onto the map via a "battle bus" and are armed with only a glider and pickaxe, with the objective being to outlast all the other players and be the last one standing. It's this similarity--and Epic's admission that PUBG inspired it--that caused PUBG developer Bluehole to speak out against the game last week.
